Typical of Heating We Do
Heating for domestic & commercial clients
Oil and gas are the UK’s main energy sources. Gas is the main source for homes in more urban areas while oil often serves homes in rural areas. LPG is an option for rural homes where gas is not available but is the preferred choice. When you are faced with choosing a heating system there is a lot to consider.
Choosing between natural gas, LPG and oil really is up to you. Having an oil or LPG system involves delivery and storage which can be problematic if space is limited. Natural gas, on the other hand, is piped directly into your home providing a constant supply without the need for delivery or storage.
Our team at Britchards assess your premises and guide you towards the best energy source for your home or business premises. With one of the most extensive heating selections, we can supply and install heating systems to residential, commercial and industrial properties on all scales. With ongoing advice and guidance and a maintenance programme in which we service, repair and replace your systems as and when required, we guarantee complete peace of mind when choosing your heating system.

Heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular as a viable alternative heat source as we all look to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. There are a number of different options available with air source and ground source being the most popular.
There are many benefits to using a heat pump. There is no need for delivery or storage of bulky fuels and it is extremely cost effective. The heat can be supplied through radiators or through underfloor heating which is a more space saving and aesthetically pleasing option freeing up wall space.
With no need for planning permission heat pumps can quickly and easily be installed with little inconvenience and once installed they require minimum maintenance and have been known to increase the value of properties.

Underfloor heating is a great way to have heat evenly distributed around your home, bringing a comfortable heat and making your floor a pleasure to walk on.
Underfloor heating is compatible with most floor surfaces including stone, tile, wood or carpet making unsightly radiators taking up wall space a thing of the past. Because the heat is so evenly distributed, with little being lost through windows or doors, it can easily help you reduce your heat bills.
Underfloor heating is not necessarily the best choice for all buildings and it can be more expensive than other heating solutions to install.
Our team of professionals will advise and guide you on the best heating solution for your home or business premises. Changing or updating a heating system can be a difficult and daunting decision with lots of questions. We listen to you and consider all factors such as budget, Eco credentials, building structure, design, size and layout to help you find the best solution for your needs. You won’t be disappointed!

Choosing the best control system for your requirements will, no doubt, save you from wasted energy and money vastly reducing your carbon dioxide emissions and reducing your bills. The efficiency of any domestic or commercial heating and hot water system can easily be hampered by a lack of suitable controls. With the large range available on the market today this is totally unnecessary and easily avoidable with specialist advice and guidance. Britchards are able to offer that advice and guidance so you make the right choice first time and reap the benefits immediately after installation.
Many homes and commercial properties have heating systems with no room thermostat leaving the systems controlled purely by thermostatic radiator valves alone. This can be particularly inefficient and substantially reduce the life expectancy of the boiler and cost far more than it needs to in utility bills. You can easily take full control of regulating temperatures in every room and comfortably heating your property in the most convenient way for you no matter whether you are home or not.
From straightforward domestic controls to purpose built control panels, Britchards can provide efficient controls for all types of domestic and commercial property.
